EDF Energy are building two new reactors at Hinkley Point on the northern Somerset coast, the first in a new generation of UK nuclear power stations, marking a significant moment in the revitalisation of the UK's nuclear power industry.
New Nuclear Build (NNB) Hinkley Point C (HPC) is a proposed 3.2 GW nuclear power plant with two EPR reactors (each of 1.6GW), producing almost four times more electricity than the Hinkley Point B station’s two reactors.
Other highlights of this mega project include:
CEMAR selected to manage the vast portfolio of design, construction and maintenance contracts across the forms of the NEC and FIDIC contract suites. Expected construction costs are approximately £20bn with CEMAR integral to the delivery of the design and construction phases of the project.
CEMAR has been deployed alongside other software applications and integrated to provide seamless workflow for non-conformance identification and rectification through a dedicated web service API.
Uniquely, NNB HPC are procuring works using the FIDIC suite of contracts alongside NEC and CEMAR has developed an off-the-shelf FIDIC module to support contract administration in a single application with integrated reporting. This combined NEC/FIDIC solution also incorporates best-practice project management processes to leverage common business processes and standardise NNB HPC's approach to contract administration.
